Anchor Aweigh!

This is it.

Today is the long-awaited, official beginning of my writing career.

No, I didn't get an agent. No, I didn't sell a manuscript.

Today my youngest child started Kindergarten.

Full-day Kindergarten. That means this writer gets six blissful hours of peace and quiet every single school day. Now I can FOCUS. Now I don't have to steal time during naps, after children are in bed at night, or before they get up in the morning. I can write and write and write!

Oh, I can't wait to get started! Everything up until now has been mere knuckle-cracking and throat-clearing. Now my words have room to breathe and stretch and grow! My stories can really LIVE!

Why am I suddenly feeling so intimidated?


  1. Ha! Because now the dream becomes real.

    And YAY YAY YAY for all day kindergarten.

    That is all.

  2. Where's the "like" button?? I spend too much time on Facebook...

    SO excited for you, Beck. It'll be my turn in 5 years. Ugh. 5 years. Yep, I think this is my last baby!

  3. Ahhh, Rebecca. I remember looking forward to that day. Alas, I received a job offer I couldn't afford to turn down 3 weeks before she started Kindergarten. :(

    I'll be thinking good thoughts for you.


What be on yer mind?
